If you have been a regular reader of the articles we have been providing lately you will have spotted a few details of the game Ninja Gaiden 3 emerging. So far we have provided you the first game details of the latest installment in the franchise as they appeared, a trailer which teases its gameplay and the latest news is about the online mode which supports up to eight players.

Today we are able to elaborate on the speculation surrounding touchscreen controls, QTE (quick time events) and the lack of the gore that the game is famous for featured in the new game, as Team Ninja looks to clear things up for us.

According to the article at VG247, the lack of severed limbs and decapitated heads, which was noticed in a demo of the game, is deliberate decision. The game developers say ‘Ninja Gaiden 3 is about violence’ rather than gore.

As for the QTE, as the game progresses prompts for attack cues and tutorial buttons stop appearing. The QTE are merely for how the actions work and for introducing players to the game. Meanwhile the introduction of the new Wii U means the game will also be available on Nintendo’s console titled Ninja Gaiden: Razor’s Edge. It will also introduce new slashing Dragon Sword controls available through the console’s touchscreen.

You can check out the full article at VG247 for more details about what Team Ninja said. If you are interested in getting the game it will be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in early 2012 with a Wii U version soon after.
